Teddy Bears Picnic
Today we had lots of fun making our sandwiches that we previously designed. We made sure we washed our hands and used the equipment sensibly, all to keep us safe. We then finished with our teddy bears picnic!
We have had so much fun learning all about magic today …… well that’s what we thought! Professor Brainstorm showed us how incredible science is and how much fun we can have investigating.
A massive thank you to everyone who donated to our CIN day. We have had lots of fun joining in spotty dressing up, Joe Wicks movement classes, Pudsey biscuits for lunch, hoopla competitions and beat the teachers!
A great big thank you to the SSOCs and sports leaders who made the day run smoothly.
We managed to raise £74 👏
Here is what Lacie-Mae (SSOCs) had to say ….
For children in need day we had so much fun doing a hoopla game. We did it to raise money for children in need to help them if they need things.
What we did … we got each class in turn. First we got class 1 and we did the team games. Red v blue then yellow v green. Then the winners played each other, right up to class 5.
We got 2 hoops and used them. In KS2 you weren’t allowed to let go of hands and you had to get your full body through the hoops but for KS1 you were allowed to let go of hands.
The prize was a sweet for the class winner and the winner out of all the teams got a chocolate bar and played the teachers. The teachers won 🙁

We are so proud of Jayden for being our artist of the month. He loves art so much that he has a sketch book that he draws in at home. He brought it in to show us and the details in his work are amazing. Well done Jayden.
We are also celebrating the work of pop art artist Andy Warhol.
Crisis Support Sleep Over – 12.11.21
UNCRC Article 27 (adequate standard of living)
What an experience we have all just had – a sleep over with a difference!
In support to our Charity – Crisis Support – our children spent the night in school sleeping on the hall floor to re-enact what it would be like if we were to be homeless. The children made shelters from cardboard boxes, ate soup from the soup kitchen and made clothing from plastic bags. This has been a real eye-opener for the children, who all demonstrated their Rights Respecting Ethos in how they conducted themselves throughout the evening. Well done Class 5; you have shone once again.
UNCRC Article 38 – Children in war zones should receive protection.
Matthew and George, from Class 4, looked so smart as they represented the Cubs during the Remembrance Service on Sunday 14th November. Well done, to you both.
UNCRC Article 13 – freedom of expression
What a superb week of debate we have had this week at Nettlesworth Primary School. We have deployed our Rights Respecting Gold Ethos throughout the whole week as we learned about Parliament, the Government, what debates are and how we can organise our own campaign in order to enhance our very own community. Even though UK Parliamentary Week has ended, we will be continuing our work across the coming weeks with a debate that will be sent to our local MP.
Once again, the children have shown a fabulous Rights Respecting Gold ethos and were a real creadit. Well done everyone.
